Hot on the heels of the stop-motion film featuring an angry LEGO cave troll from The Lord of the Rings, the creative production company known as Brotherhood Workshop has released LEGO: A Hobbit Halloween.

In the video, the hobbits Merry and Pippin are up to their usual mischief and decide to dress up like Ring Wraiths to pull a Halloween prank on Sam and Frodo. What they don't know is that Aragorn has been silently stalking them the whole time thinking they're actually agents of the Dark Lord. Before they know, Merry and Pippin are comically set ablaze by a torch wielding Aragorn who bursts out of the bushes and chases them into a nearby river.

In addition to being hilarious and well animated, LEGO: A Hobbit Halloween teaches an important life lesson -- never dress up like Ring Wraiths around the King of Gondor. Stats for LEGO Hobbit Stories Trending: Older & Mild
